      After enlarging the photo, he does have sunglasses pushed up above his brow but it is hard to see since the cap and glasses are both black. Would not have mattered anyway because his friends will give him up for a reward if there is one.

    It’s obvious he wants to be caught and supported by the taxpayers as he made no effort to conceal his identity!!!!!

    If someone walked into a bank and did not display a weapon, and did not make a threat, but just give the teller a note saying I want money please…is that really robbing the bank? I wonder?
    Could someone just say I asked and she just gave it to me. Would that not make the teller in the wrong? I wonder how that would work in court?

    Faith, you are an idiot. Note or gun, robbery is robbery. You don;t jeopardize the lives of others by asking a criminal if the weapon is real. #frigginmoron
